The reigning champions of France, Lille, come from the north of France, close to the Belgian border. A big city, top class football and tickets are never a problem. It makes Lille the ideal daytrip from the Netherlands, Belgium or even the south of the UK. Or make it a weekend, because Lille is a perfect city to grap a couple of beers.

Lille, totally unexpected the best of the country

You could have won an awful load of money if you'd placed a bet before last season on Lille as champions. Against all odds, Les Dogues managed to stay ahead of the seemingly unbeatable Paris Saint-Germain. This year, they had to take a step back, but they're still doing great in the Champions League. Lille is good fun, no matter what.
